Vermaelen certain Arsenal will respond to important raft of fixtures

Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen believes the club are about to embark on a crucial period that could determine their season. The Gunners have an FA Cup third-round replay against Swansea on Wednesday, a Champions League first knockout round tie against Bayern Munich on the horizon along with a number of important league games.

"There are a lot of big, big fixtures coming up against good teams - big games," he told Arsenal Player.

"This (the defeat to Man City) was the first one, we wanted to have a good start and that is why it is more disappointing we could not get a good result.

"But against Swansea, I am confident the group will respond on this defeat, and I'm confident we can get a result on Wednesday."
